3 Shoulder Exercises for Quarterbacks

There's no better time than the offseason to get in peak shape for the football games awaiting you this fall.

For quarterbacks, that means strengthening the parts of your body that will be used the most in games. To throw the ball stronger and more accurately--while preventing debilitating injuries--shoulder workouts during the downtime are crucial.

Todd Durkin, the owner of Fitness Quest 10, has worked with numerous NFL players in his decorated career as a strength, speed and conditioning coach. His list of clients includes quarterbacks Drew Brees, Carson Palmer and Aaron Rodgers, as well as running back LaDainian Tomlinson, tight end Kellen Winslow and others.

Here are three shoulder exercises that Durkin uses on his clients that will develop the strength and mobility needed to become a great passing quarterback.
